This I Believe…All Libraries Should Be Teaching Libraries

There is a noteworthy article titled This I Believe…All Libraries Should Be Teaching Libraries. It is from portal: Libraries and the Academy - Volume 11, Number 1, January 2011, pp. 575-582. The author is Catherine Palmer.

Here is the abstract:

In this article, I imagine a library that prioritizes teaching users how to find, evaluate, and use information over the traditional library public service activities of collection development, access to materials, and reference services. If I ran the library, all services would support end-user education.
